In this class, I’m going to teach you the basics of Premiere Pro focusing on exactly what I think you’ll need to edit a How-To Video for YouTube. So, if you’ve never touched Premiere Pro but are anxious to get started creating content this is the class for you.
Our project for this class will be editing a plant how-to video -- because I love plants. The footage to follow along and edit for yourself will be in the description box for you to download. We’ll go over the Premiere Pro interface and how to set up your project and import footage, cutting together your A-Roll the main footage content, and B-Roll -- which is just another word for supplemental footage. We’ll put in basic graphics using text, create an intro graphic for the video, and also create an end screen.
And then finally, we’ll go over basic color correction, how to add and balance music along with some minor audio editing tweaks, and then set up our video to export. I’ll show you how to export your video from Premiere directly or how to export from Encoder if you have a full Creative Cloud account.
